I respect that you have taken a stand on things and that you have stuck with it but it seems too all-or-nothing to me. I'll buy everything if you give me complete access through this site. If not then I buy nothing. Complete access? You still have darn good access through this site (i was here in 2005 as a lurker and remember the mood and the arguments) and frankly through bit torrent still have "complete" access if you are willing to use that.

I got over the "See Ya" comment a long time ago. It was stupid. I purchase what looks/sounds interesting to me and don't purchase what is not. However I do respect the band's right to market this stuff.

I completely agree that its a new world for musicians however I am not sure how that applies in this case since the band that recorded these concerts can no longer tour and they can no longer sound like they did 40 years ago. I would still rather purchase two RT releases then one Further ticket. I'll save my concert money for more current bands.

I agree, they have a right to market it, absolutely. I'm just not buying.

I also know it's not like the old days when you actually had to make a serious effort to trade tapes, and there was a community of people you knew, and you had to take 3 hours just to tape one show instead of a few minutes to DL it. Those were fun days. I remember many a taping party where folks would bring their tape decks and tapes to one place and stay up all night to get a couple new shows. Thank goodness for good herb and fungi.
